Dear all,

long time no chat…

A lot had happened meanwhile but the most important was the last metamorphosis of The Mistique Moth into Chiramó! It spread its wings and flew high shrouded in colors and dreams.

Chiramó Jewelry aims at taking the work of The Mistique Moth to another level, meeting the international public and expectations. Thus, the Chiramó Jewelry shop on Etsy came into being and thanks to the almighty, Chiramó jewelry will be displayed in Florence this winter, along with the works of other 25 Italian artists from Etsy community (details here).

So, this being said, I wish you’d follow my new blog and fb page to keep in touch with the latest news and creations. Also, if you want to make an eco-friendly, one-of-a-kind present this winter and to support my work, I welcome you to my etsy shop.

As this will be my last post here, on The Mistique Moth, I wish you all, by now,  a beautiful and joyous wintertime and Christmas with friends and family around!

Thank you for appreciating and supporting my work so far. I look forward to continuing this beautiful trip together on Chiramó Jewelry!

Go Green! Wear paper jewelry!

Carmen 🙂 ❤

Hello dears,

 

Winter is coming! What a time of wonder! Let us, women, dive into this fairy tale and become its first protagonist, full of grace, wisdom and beauty.

***

“Winter Wonder” is very distinctive from my other jewelry collecrions because it brings in many new elements. New materials: the corrugated cardboard, the silver plated copper and, probably, above all, the color: white. All these I avoided all along in my work, having a preference for deep colors, vintage and aged elements and using mostly brass wire and bronze findings to complement the jewelry. . So, this is a 180 degrees turn in my work and for me is very refreshing, inspiring and motivating. I loved every stage of the process: making the beads, thinking the design, actually making the jewelry and finally taking the pictures… every one of these brought me another kind of satisfaction but above all is the satisfaction I get when I see the delight in the eyes of my lovely customers when they see the jewelry life, when they try it on.

The beads are made individually from upcycled corrugated cardboard. They are made individually, by hand, cut, glued and varnished several times, with water-based varnish. The hue of the beads is that of the paper. The beads are not painted. The metal part is silver plated copper.

If you’re looking for a special present this year, this might be the one!
